Huawei towers in Europe – level 2

20-05-2020 07:00

The process of exchanging 5G mobile equipment started for thousands of towers across Europe.

Countries like the UK, France, and Sweden are doing this work because the United States said that China’s Huawei technology was a risk to national security. Huawei said strongly and repeatedly that it wasn’t true.

This change will cost millions of dollars and many years to complete.

Hull is the first British city in which the Huawei ban is becoming a reality. Workers are cutting out the Chinese business’ equipment there by July. They will substitute it with parts from Nokia.

Difficult words: exchange (to change something for something), equipment (things which you need for some activity), ban (an official rule that says that something is not possible).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
